Looking for some help in locating a good place to stay in Barcelona. Hope to spend 2 days there before a November return on the Mellinium to Ft Lauderdale. Looking for any experienced ideas and suggestions.
Last October we stayed at the Barcelona Hilton prior to our Constellation transatlantic cruise. The hotel is located in a lovely, upscale residential neighborhood and is about a five minute cab ride into the center of town.
We stayed at Le Meridien on both our transatlantics. It is around the corner from Las Ramblas - middle section. Wonderful full breakfast buffet included in price of room.
Location was great - a couple of blocks in either direction to catch the tourist bus, right next to the Gothic quarter.
I would recommend using the Bus Turistic to see the sights. The cost was $14 Euros for one day, $19 Euros for 2 days per person. You can get on and off at any stop as many times as you want. There are two routes that cover most of Barcelona and you get a coupon booklet for discounts on admissions to those sights that charge.
